The Xiaomi Mi 11 still holds the title of first flagship to launch with the Snapdragon 888 processor. However, it was more underwhelming in how it looked, which also had practical fall-out in some areas, not the least of which were the strange effects of its display's design. A prodigious leaker now claims these issues are gone in its predecessor.

Xiaomi launched the Mi 11 to enormous hype and the success to match, thanks to its status as the inaugural Snapdragon 888 flagship smartphone. However, despite this, the device did have its flaws. The OEM aimed to give the device the best possible start in life with an exaggerated quad-curve display, intended to enhance viewing angles for its high-end AMOLED display.

However, this design somehow resulted in frankly strange and potentially distracting mismatched corners in this screen. Now, the leaker Digital Chat Station claims Xiaomi has addressed this problem in the Mi 11's successor, currently thought to be called the 12 and to run on the 888's own direct successor, the Snapdragon "898".

To be more specific, the 12's possibly upgraded display will restrict itself to be dual-curved instead, and will thus have a more refined forehead and bezel. Furthermore, Digital Chat Station now also asserts that the hypothetical flagship's rear cameras will also be a departure from the possibly iPhone-inspired Mi 11.

The existing premium device has a camera hump that fuses its triple lenses together. The 12 may also have 3 rear shooters; however, they might have individual cut-outs this time around, in a way that is apparently a cosmetic improvement over its successor.
